Will Starbucks Start Delivering in Rockford in 2019?
We can send men to the moon. We have cars that can drive themselves. Our phones can recognize our facial features. So why can't I stay in bed on a Saturday and have my coffee delivered? Well getting Starbucks delivered is possible, but it's not as easy as most people would like.
Looks like that's going to change in 2019. In an announcement Tuesday the company announced they're partnering with Uber Eats to start delivery to 6 major cities. The service starts in San Francisco on Tuesday January 22, and will launch in the other cities over the next few weeks, the company said.
Business Insider details -
Uber Eats will partner up with Starbucks Delivers, the coffee chain's delivery service, to offer on-the-go coffee to people in San Francisco, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and Washington, DC. By the end of the rollout, Starbucks says Uber Eats couriers will be able to pick up its products from one-quarter of its stores in the US, which amounts to about 3,500 branches.
So will you be able to get all of your favorites? And will your coffee still be the perfect temperature? According to Insider -
Under the new service, people will be able to order 95% of the Starbucks menu on the Uber Eats app. Starbucks has also come up with new "packaging solutions" to keep coffee hot within the promised 30-minute delivery time, the company said.
